Subject[PATCH] v4l2: i2c: ov7670: Fix PLL bypass register values
The following commits:
commit f6dd927f34d6 ("[media] media: ov7670: calculate framerate properly for ov7675")
commit 04ee6d92047e ("[media] media: ov7670: add possibility to bypass pll for ov7675")
introduced the ability to bypass PLL multiplier and use input clock (xvclk)
as pixel clock output frequency for ov7675 sensor.

PLL is bypassed using register DBLV[7:6], according to ov7670 and ov7675
sensor manuals. Macros used to set DBLV register seem wrong in the
driver, as their values do not match what reported in the datasheet.

Fix by changing DBLV_* macros to use bits [7:6] and set bits [3:0] to
default 0x0a reserved value (according to datasheets).

While at there, remove a write to DBLV register in
"ov7675_set_framerate()" that over-writes the previous one to the same
register that takes "info->pll_bypass" flag into account instead of setting PLL
multiplier to 4x unconditionally.

And, while at there, since "info->pll_bypass" is only used in
set/get_framerate() functions used by ov7675 only, it is not necessary
to check for the device id at probe time to make sure that when using
ov7670 "info->pll_bypass" is set to false.

Javier, as you're the author of commit 04ee6d92047e1ac68d4eb615119343f4f0fc57db
that introduced DBLV_ macros, have you ever seen it working with those macros
values? Where did those value come from? I have checked both ov7670 and ov7675
datasheet and they seems wrong, but I don't have an ov7675 sensor, so I can
only compile test this...


EDIT: seems like Javier email address is not valid anymore.. I'm dropping
it from receiver list, hoping he reads the media mailing list.
